deficit, and a lot of back- and-forth over these three issues. i want to say one word about the debt ceiling. not many people understand what the debt ceiling is about. raising the debt ceiling, which congress has to do periodically, gives the government the ability to pay its existing bills. it doesn't create new deficits. it does not create new spending. so not raising the debt ceiling is sort of like a family, which is trying to improve its credit rating, shane, i know how we can improve our credit rating. we will pay your credit card bills. that is not the best way to improve your credit rating. all of these issues are important, but it is very important that congress take necessary action to raise the debt ceiling to avoid a situation where our government does not pay its bills. >> and number of people have expressed concern about how much of the chill news were addressed in the deal. it went part way, but it leaves a number of issues still on the table and negotiations are looming. would you characterize that as an additional cliff that is facing us? or is it not as concerned a

republican party. that's why i think you saw them retreat from the plan to push this debt ceiling issue immediately upon returning to work. so i think that there's a prospect for getting some things done. certainly on issues like immigration reform. there's a powerful impetus for there to be progress. i think we can make some. >> david, thank you very much. you're going to be leaving the president's side and starting an institute of politics at the university of chicago and we wish you all the luck in the world. >> you guys, i need you out there. >> nancy cordis is there as a number of the dignitaries begin to take their seats. what are you seeing? >> scott, there are 1,600 seats that have been set up on the west front terrace of the capitol. people who will be surrounding the president as he takes the oath of office. we are still awaiting the announcement of the dignitaries who will come out in groups. first, the nation's diplomatic core, the governor, then the cabinet, the joint chief of staff, and supreme court. and two former presidents, bill clinton and president carter who will both be in att

reform, tries to deal with the debt ceiling. and finally, we're told that the president will push to get the public engaged, engaged in their community, engaged in the issues to put pressure on congress to move the president's initiatives forward, john. this is seen as sort of the stage one or the act one, part two will be the president's state of the union address where he'll add more details to his proposals. >> you split it into acts there, dan, appropriate because we saw the president today, the swearing-in ceremony, but because this is a sunday, we saw him only briefly in the blue room. how has he been spending the rest of the day, and what are his plans for this evening? >> reporter: this evening within this hour, the president will be heading to the building museum for a candlelight reception there. he will be making remarks, but much of the day, you know, was quite busy earlier in the day, then had some down time. the president's still working on his speech. we're told that he's in the final stages. he did a lot of it on his own, longhand on those yellow pads. he does have speechwriters working with him as well, and we're told that the president will

. we know we will deal with this year. debt ceiling, entitlement reform, et cetera, et cetera. right and left, republicans and democrats are diametrically opposed with their orthodoxy. democrats more moderate with republicans on certain things. republicans are more send activity that work with democrats. in the wake of the 2012 election as we look forward what is happening with the president's second term there are historical realities. the country is system of two parties and they compete hard. they compete hard for their agendas and it is not going to be an easy year. a second term is difficult one. the first year of four is really the best, some say only opportunity to pass legislation effectively. after the second year of a second term, on comes the midterm, 2014 will be a very, very important time which will determine by who is ted anated aho wi, what the republican and democratic presidential candidates look like in the back of president obama's second term and who his successor will be. something that has not happened in many years, not at all inconceivable. everyone recognize

issues of spending and debt and debt ceiling. they are not ruling out. democrats have a ten-point advantage, 55-45. you only need 40. there could be a real showdown if the republicans stick together. they say they are not in the mood to, essentially, they say compromise on things that are poor principles for them. they are more geared up to fight and take on some of these legislative battles. for the next four years we will see. we will have another midterm election that could change the makeup of the house and senate again. that will have a big impact on his last two years in office as well. neil: we are just getting a shot at sasha and melia, the president's daughters. they have grown in the last four years. and his mother in law. this is the first president in more than a generation who has his mother-in-law living at the white house. good or bad, he has his mother-in-law living at the white house. that should be, at some levels, admired. it is what it is. she is very instrumental in raising the girls and keeping them grounded. the major folks are in place. the remaining member

for the reaching of common ground on these major issues, like the debt ceiling, the budget, gun-control, immigration, tax reform, those kinds of things. i think it is true that we have a divided government now. it has been a difficult four years, but president obama is a natural conciliate her -- conciliation person, and he will make that a big theme of his second term. i think you will hear some of that tomorrow. >> this is from this morning's "washington post." you can draw an analogy to two former president, franklin roosevelt and dwight eisenhower, finding parallels to what fdr delivered in his second address in 1937, and what eisenhower faced in 1957. >> the roosevelt second inaugural address is interesting to read because it really is of a peace with first inaugural. the president said, i came in with a huge crisis, i have been leading this country through, we're on the right path. we are going to keep going. he has a phrase in there -- have we found our happy valley? it was a very fine speech. i would have to go back and look at it again. i do not read it as being an aggr

. >> don't forget about that. we have the debt ceiling vote, whether it's coming at the end of february or three months later, that's looming. it's a major issue. it's nonoptional. and as david said, something like universal background checks, "washington post" poll showed 89% republicans support for. it won't translate into that level of support in congress. >> we're talking about domestic issues. clearly the president wants that to be his focus. he'd like to have a more robust recovery than the first term. again, we're often surprised. events overseas can capture the attention. the president wants to look to asia and china, but he's got a middle east in north africa that is unpredictable if not worse. how much, david, do you see the world intervening in the second term? >> a lot. and historically, it's intervened more and more partly because presidents have also sort of invited that. >> yes. >> as domestic power has wound down, they've turned to the international side. but here suddenly north africa seems explosive. and i don't think the president, as much as he wants to pivot, i just don't think he can move away from it. it's not just benghazi. i

the debt ceiling, the budget, gun control, immigration, tax reform, those kinds of things. so i think that it is true that we are -- we have a divided government now. it has been a difficult four years but i think president obama is a natural. i think he will make that a big theme of his second term. i think you will hear some of that tomorrow. host: this is from this morning's "the washington post" who writes a new term, a new obama. he points out and draws an aanalogy to f.d.r. and eisenhower. guest: the roosevelt second inaugural address is interesting to read. it really is at peace with the first inaugural address. this is a president saying i came in with a huge crisis, we're on the right path, we're going to keep going. he has a phrase in there, have we found our happy val valley? i -- valley. i don't read it as being an aggressive speech. he was speaking to the whole country but he wasn't in campaign mode. roosevelt was very good in that way and eisenhower never sounded like he was in campaign mode. guest: i think that speech is recognized as one of the better second inaugurals

interesting, as you say, ed, to see where the debt ceiling debate continues after the proposal last week from the house republicans meeting down in williamsburg, but there are also two other big deadlines here forcing issues. one is the sequestration and the other is the so-called continuing resolution that would keep the government going and that's where the fight may well be played, right? >> absolutely. you could see a government shutdown sometime after march 27th if the continuing resolution isn't extended, but what we're hearing now -- by the way, senator chuck schumer talked about this yesterday is democrats saying, we are going to -- in the senate, we are going to put up a budget and that budget is going to involve new revenues and spending cuts and it would be kind of crazy not to incorporate all of these into that document. >> all right. thanks to jared bernstein, don baer, chuck gabriel, hampton pierce on and eamom jabbers. the 57th inauguration of a president. the 21st time that a president has been inaugurated, a sitting president, for a second term. it's been a very interesting day. i think the award for funkiest chappeau goes to justice scalia. he was wearing one of the ceremonial hats. i want to
